, look, it's not a reset, it's not a shake up, washington, calm down. and you know they were working the phones all weekend at the white house to make sure that ben bernanke is reconfirmed as federal reserve chair. aides tell us they're confident now they have weathered the storm at this point. >> they needed the weekend badly. if that vote was friday, i don't know if bernanke would have gotten confirmed. >> so much about the anger about the lingering crisis in the economy has been directed as bernanke. it looked as if for a moment that the confirmation was in jeopardy. >> that's a huge worry for the white house. top aides fear that a rejection of bernanke would send the markets into chaos. judd gregg serves on the banking committee. he supports bernanke and is playing point. senator gregg, is it fair to say that friday was bernanke's worst day in the senate and things after the weekend have calmed down? >> i don't know. i think there was a bit of exaggeration. these type of stories take on their own energy out there. my view is that chairman bernanke's always had a pretty solid vote

of washington. who was it that was behind the scenes putting all of this together for him. >> it apparently was ari fleischer. former white house press secretary who apparently had a hand in suggesting what he did. and if you look at the way mcgwire did this, he was very emotional in his interview. but knowing that he dotted all those is, he crossed the ts, it sounds like something that was very, very planned. but the big question is how much he really feels about this, because he admitted he did it because of injuries. he did not say that he wouldn't have been able to accomplish that record if he was not on steroids. >> i thought the maris phone call, the phone call to mrs. maris, that made it more genuine to me than anything else he did. >> it was a classy thing to do. >> and probably the product of the advice from ari fleischer. >> but probably the single toughest phone call he had to make. >> and there's the whole hall of fame question. he has now 24% of the vote. he will need 75% if he's going to get in. that's another question. could it be the timing. >> won't get my vote.
